Finally, a FourStroke outboard with brains and brawn. Boating choices were once black and white: four-stroke outboard engines boasted advanced technology and reliability, but couldn’t equal the acceleration of traditional two-strokes. Mercury, driven by a history of marine innovation, set out to manufacture a FourStroke outboard engine that would deliver performance and reliability with an automotive-like driving experience. And we came up with Verado, the world’s only supercharged production outboard engine. The future of outboards is here today.
